tv   The FOX Report With Shepard Smith  FOX News  January 15, 2013 4:00pm-5:00pm PST

4:00 pm
west point cadets are trained to serve and protect. one student was trying to do that by helping a friend in need. his plan of action did not exactly have the outcome that he may have been expecting when he let a little mouse go that he found in his dorm room. what is this? >> go. get on out. good luck. >> how do you feel? >> i feel relieved that he is not going to wake me up in my bed anymore. [ laughter ] >> but kind of sad, you know. i just got to know him. [wind blowing] >> oh, no. [ laughter ] >> no! are you kidding me? >> he didn't last five
4:01 pm
minutes. [ laughter ] >> oh, no. thanks for inviting us into your home tonight. that's it for this "special report," fair, balanced and unafraid. >> shepard: fox report begins with developing news and a live look at the house of representatives where we expect the final vote on emergency aid for victims of super storm sandy during this newscast. we'll go live to capitol hill coming up inside fox report. police oprah winfrey on her marathon interview with disgraced cyclist lance armstrong. >> we were mesmerized and rivot the by some of thinks answers. >> they sat together for hours discussioned the deposition and she said there were some surprises. >> he did not come clean in the manner that i expected. plus how the justice department could soon be going after lance armstrong. in the wake of the new town
4:02 pm
massacre, the white house looking for ways to prevent mass murder. but one state won't wait. there is no time like the present to act. >> new york lawmakers what could be the toughest gun control restrictions in america. >> this is not about taking anyone's rights away. >> i voted know i only wish i could have done it twice. what the rules require and why chit particulars say they could create a new problem. but first from fox this tuesday night. lance armstrong is a liar and much more. the disgraced athlete has reportedly admitted that he used performance enhancing drugs to become famous to make millions of dollars and destroyed people who told the truth about it tonight the empire that lance armstrong built is crumbling. collapsing as rapidly as his reputation. armstrong reportedly confessed to doping during a sit down with oprah yesterday. winfrey plans to air the two and a half hour interview this week. this morning, a preview. >> i felt that he was
4:03 pm
thoughtful. i thought that he was serious. i thought that he certainly had prepared himself for this moment. >> oprah said lance armstrong didn't come clean in the way she expected. but no matter what, he actually admitted or how he admitted it it certainly doesn't end here. telling the truth will not set him free. because several organizations and companies are asking armstrong to pay back millions in settlements and appearance fees. and the u.s. justice department is reportedly set to join a lawsuit against lance armstrong for defrauding his one-time sponsor, the u.s. postal service. now, keep in mind, lance armstrong has already lost his tour de france titles, along with the respective millions. but after years of denials of lies, of ruining lives, it's possible that he is only beginning to pay the price. trace gallagher is tracking developments from our west coast news hub this afternoon. what if anything do we know about this oprah interview.
4:04 pm
>> we nope open prove winfrey said came ready asking if she came ready. continue his deception. we heard oprah say that he didn't come clean the way she expected. but then she later said that she was satisfied. listen. >> if he says, this then i goal do that. if he says this answer, then i will go to seven deadly sins page 114. i didn't have to do that because he was pretty forth coming. today we talked to a sports writer who says he has been watching lance armstrong lie, cheat and ruin reputations for years. he says that people who watch this interview should do so with a grain of salt. listen. >> most people, their knowledge of cycling basically was extended as far as lance. they don't know, they don't care about the specifics, but i mean, what this guy did was so much more than just, you know, get caught cheating and take a few drugs. i mean, he went out to destroy
4:05 pm
lives. >> we should also note that lance armstrong's attorneys were not allowed to be in that sit down interview with oprah. shep? >> word that the olympics might drop cycling as a sport out of all of this? >> the international cycling union the uci is the governing body of cycling. for years there has been allegations of the uci actually tried to cover up these doping scandals. lance armstrong has indicated that he may testify against others. if he implicates and then has proof that u c was dirty in all of this the olympic committee could take action with one member saying and i'm quoting the only way cycling is going to clean if you please all these people say hey, we are no longer in the olympics and that's where we want to be. so let's earn our way back. in in other words, give cycling four to eight years to try and get its act back together. shep? >> shepard: for a long time it's been talked about was the doping responsible for the
4:06 pm
cancer in lance armstrong? >> today "u.s.a. today" said in fact lance armstrong told oprah that he was doping before he was diagnosed with cancer in 1996. of course his teammates have also testified that the doping did precede the cancer diagnosis. but we cannot find a single link, linking performance enhancing drugs with testicular cancer. there is a study that links steroids to liver cancer but even that study, shep, is very much inconclusive. >> shepard: trace gallagher live this afternoon. thank you. another gunman opened fire at a school today just as president obama and other -- and lawmakers were working to prevent these types of shootings from happening again. the attack unfolded at business school college in st. louis. the news was breaking on "studio b." a man in his early 20's shot a school administrator in his chest that worker's fourth floor office. police found the shooter in the stairwell after he
4:07 pm
eventually shot himself. our fox station ktvi for st. louis and beyond report the victim was a financial advisor. the police chief says that the student had attended classes at that school part time. i don't want to speculate on the motive. the suspect and the victim were familiar with each other. they knew each other. this did not appear to be random. it appeared to be targeted towards the two. there were no other students that were injured. >> financial advisor and client. client is accused of shooting. but sources tell the associated press that some of the students hid under desks or in closets. it happened at the stevens institute of business and arrests a trade school forever known as patricia stevens college. the shooting suspect is now in custody. both he and the victim in surgery at the hospital. now we're learning president obama will announce his plan to reduce gun violence tomorrow. that's the word from the whowssments joe biden gave a list of recommendations from his task force. officials on capitol hill say the president is considering
4:08 pm
19 steps he could take on his own without anything from congress. wendell goler at the white house tonight. what do we know about the president's plan, wendell? >> shep, we expect it will include a combination of things, proposals for congress to take up and things as you say the administration can do on its own. the latter include cracking down on people who lie on background checks, tougher penalties for gun traffickers and better access to state and mental health records. the president will also propose things that will require congressional approval including ban on assault weapons and high capacity magazines and universal background checks for gun buyers. all of these are long shots and aides say even those things wouldn't completely solve the problem. >> this is something that we have to address as a nation. it's not something you can do alone through executive action. it's not something you can do with even a series of laws that congress might pass. this is a problem that touches on a variety of areas of
4:09 pm
american life it needs to be approached broadly. jay carney says americans need to admit we haven't done enough to protect our children. shepard? >> how are lawmakers responding. >> some support tougher existence. few in favor of new laws. senate majority leader harry reid says he won't ask democrats to make politically difficult votes on issues that can't get the republican led house. republican -- examined very closely. >> this is a very important constitutional right, we are dedicated to protecting the second amendment from that standpoint. so, what we want to focus on are ways to make sure that people with serious mental difficulties are kept away from firearms. >> any legislative proposals would begin in the senate and then go to goodlatte's
4:10 pm
committee in the house. shepard? >> shepard: here in new york senator signed toughest legislation in the nation. law expands assault weapons ban already in place in new york state. it makes it illegal to buy those firearms on the internet seven bullets down from the national stashed of 10. if somebody steals your gun, you will have 24 hours to report it. otherwise, you, the owner, could face a penalty. and the law ups the sentences for certain weapons crimes including taking a gun on to school property. keep in mind this is the first major gun law passed in any state since the massacre at sandy hook elementary school more than a month ago. the chief fox report correspondent jonathan hunt is with us tonight. lawmakers in albany new york very passionate on this subject today. >> absolutely. governor cuomo has pushed this legislation very hard. at a signing ceremony today, he repeatedly said how proud he is of new york state and how he believes this
4:11 pm
legislation makes the people of new york much safer, listen. we saw, we learned, we responded, we acted and we are doing something about it we are not victims. we can strike back and we can defend ourselves. but we are going to do it intelligently. and we're going to do it prudently. we will put rules in place that actually protect innocent people in society. >> now, this bill was passed on a bipartisan basis but that does not say there are not knows vehemently opposed. here is one of them. >> this gun bill does nothing to protect the law abiding citizens of oour great state. it was crystal clear to me that this bill will not stop one criminal from committing a heinous act. this bill does infringe upon and weaken our second amendment rights. national rifle association issued a statement late this evening in which they also
4:12 pm
condemned the legislation n strikingly similar language to that used by its opponents in albany today, shep. >> shepard: part of this law in new york state addresses the mental as pecket specht of things. >> there is a part of this law which says that any therapist who is treating somebody who make what is that therapist deems to be a credible threat to use a gun illegally has to report that patient to the authorities. governor cuomo says that will make everyone safer. some doctors including dr. paul al pell balm with the columbia university of physicians disagree. he said quote the people who arguably most need to be in treatment and most need to feel free to talk about these disturbing impulses may be the ones we make least likely to do so. they will simply not come or not report the thoughts they have. now, these are all arguments that have been made in new york state. they are all arguments we are
4:13 pm
likely to see repeated again on the national stage to president obama announcements at the white house, shep. >> shepard: thank you. american citizen says is he being tortured in iranian prison because of his christian faith. now is he set to go before a tough judge. one who is known for putting to death. his story and the effort to say him coming up. house floor house of representatives where we are waiting the final vote on some crucial aid for victims of super storm sandy. it's an issue that sparked a lot of anger, especially among all those people still waiting for help. at issue. do we have decreases in spending to pay for this? or do the people come first on what is tens of billions of dollar bill. we'll no shortly from the journalists of fox news on this tuesday fox report.

4:18 pm
although he was born in iran he became a u.s. citizen two years after ago marrying a u.s. woman. days ago a state department spokesman accused iran of violating his human rights. >> he was arrested by iranian officials more than three months ago on charges related to his religious beliefs. we understand a hearing will be held soon and we call on iranian officials to respect iran's own laws and provide him access to an attorney. >> despite raising serious concerns about his arrest. his supporters are frustrated that u.s. officials not called for his immediate release. meanwhile, tens of thousands have signed a petition urging iran to set him free. the trial slated to get underway next week. shepard? >> shepard: david lee miller from new york. activists say a pair of explosions at a university in syria today killed more than 80 students on the first day of exams. rebel fighters blame each other as is standard these days for the blast. the blast that reportedly killed students and other people at the university dorms

4:31 pm
across the finish line. bottom line lawmakers heard a lot of passionate pleas from lawmakers in new york, sniewj, connecticut about the struggles that people there have been going through since super storm sandy. shear a sample. please remember that when you cast your vote today, these are americans in need that are counting on us to stand up and do the right thing radless if you are from a state that has ha had disasters or not. >> people lost their homes, their cars, their jobs. in some cases their entire neighborhoods and there should not be different standards for different storms or for different regions so some comfort for those lawmakers and their constituents more importantly who are still cleaning up and rebuilding after siewmp storm sandy. the final vote was 241 to 180, shep. >> shepard: the argument was not whether there was need or
4:32 pm
whether it was going to happen but whether we offset this payment with spending cuts has really been the rights argument for the long time now about all spending that's right. we are $16 trillion and counting in debt. so a lawmaker from south carolina which is prone to getting its hurricanes so he understands disaster relief money. with the debt growing every day, we have to start paying for some of this stuff. here is his pitch. why don't have enough money saved up to take care of our own people and that's wrong. it's absolutely wrong it is important to me that this money goes to the folks who need it very badly. it's so important to me that i think we should pay for it. >> now, the argument against him was essentially that they have never forced lawmakers to pay for this kind of disaster relief money by cutting elsewhere before. why should they do it this first time. shep? >> shepard: there was a key
4:33 pm
moment, mike, before this vote from a representative from new jersey, right? >> a republican from new jersey, the initial bill in the house was only going to be $17 billion whereas the metropolitan area there of new york was looking for more like $51 billion for long-term rebuilding. so free land added an amendment that tripled the house bill from $17 billion to about $51 billion. it passed and that essentially cleared the way for this whole measure to pass the house. >> and anybody who thinks that the fight spending and debt is over is mistaken. >> plenty more ahead in the coming weeks as they deal with the debt ceiling. also, those automatic cuts to defense and domestic spending. plenty more battles ahead over spending, shep. >> shepard: mike emanuel on the hill. the bill has passed and the president will sign it into law. two weeks after congress approved a separate measure to
4:34 pm
borrow $10 billion to flood insurance claims from sandy and other disasters. throughout the areas sandy hit hardest we are hearing stories of people growing increasingly frustrated in delays by getting money they need. >> the whole outside of the house was ripped apart with waves. >> the waves washed out 16 years of family mementos from this water front house on new york's long island. >> what you see is exactly how we found it after the hurricane. >> jane long-term says she will -- letterman says she will have to tear down the home she loved. two months after the storm she is still waiting for the insurance payment to get her started. >> this is a shame. it's just a shame that, you know, this had to happen. but the thing to do is to fix it as fast as possible to make things normal. they are not doing that. >> letterman estimates she will need more than $400,000 to rebuild. so far she tells us she has received just a fraction of that. a $10,000 check from her homeowner's policy to cover wind damage to a roof and
4:35 pm
siding plus $7,000 toward some of the items she lost. but nobody has told her how much to expect from her flood insurance. >> we just need to move on in our life. you know. what's taking so long? >> they have reason to be concerned at this stage of the game that they haven't seen their money as of yet it's happening all across the region. fema which flood insurance program 70% of those who file flood insurance claims are still waiting for their money. a spokesman insists progress is still being made and that quote fema has taken steps to ensure that flood insurance claims are processed as quickly as possible following hurricane sandy. insurance representatives says there seems to be no simple explanation for the delays other than the massive scope of the disaster. >> it comes back to the shear number of claims and come plebletion city of some of these claims. the fact that they are not all closed at this stage of the game is not a surprise at all.
